Lambda Chi Alpha Elects New Grand High Alpha, Jeff Stuerman

During the 57th General Assembly in Jacksonville, Florida, Jeff Stuerman was elected to the position of Grand High Alpha (GHA). He takes over from former GHA Fletcher McElreath.

Stuerman comes into his appointment with a wealth of knowledge and experience, both in the fraternal world and outside. Earning his bachelor’s from Culver-Stockton College, Stuerman went on to earn his MBA from Washington University in St. Louis. He continues his ties to his alma mater by serving on the Culver-Stockton College Board of Trustees. Stuerman was initiated into Lambda Chi Alpha at Culver-Stockton.

At the end of 2014, Stuerman retired as chairman, president and CEO of Edward Jones Trust Company. He also served as a transition budget director for the state of Missouri. Stuerman has 30-plus years of experience within the financial services industry, and most recently, served as the president of his own consulting firm. In addition, Stuerman also served as the president and CEO of the TIAA-CREF Trust Company.

Within the fraternity, Stuerman has been heavily involved for many years. He most recently held the position of Grand High Pi. He also serves on the Lambda Chi Alpha Educational Foundation Board and is a past Housing Corporation member.

Of Stuerman, Lambda Chi Alpha CEO Bill Farkas said this:

“I’m looking forward to working with Jeff Stuerman.  He is a incredible brother and Lambda Chi Alpha will reap huge benefits from his leadership. It will be exciting to see what the future holds under Jeff’s guidance.”

When he is not bettering Lambda Chi, Stuerman can be found fly fishing or tending to his first two colonies of honeybees.

Stuerman says he is honored and humbled to be elected as the next GHA and is looking forward to the opportunity to grow the fraternity even more.

“Jeff Stuerman has been in tune with our brotherhood since his early days…he has tremendous leadership skills, honed through significant board leadership in higher education, church and community organizations, and Lambda Chi Alpha,” said Mark Bauer, CEO of the Educational Foundation. “I have worked with no one better than Jeff in knowing how to maximize his board leadership role.”

Stuerman will begin his duties as GHA immediately.

“Like all of our brothers, I am committed to Lambda Chi Alpha becoming the premier organization for the personal and professional development of men,” said Stuerman. “I can’t thank all of our alumni brothers enough for all they do to model the way; our values uniquely prepare our brothers to make a significant contribution to society as servant leaders.”
